Huge Congratulations to Lauren Cameron & Isla Johnston (Pitlochry) who won the 2021 Coronation Foursomes Grand Final at St Andrews.
Isla Johnston, aged only 14, and Lauren Cameron, 22, from Pitlochry Golf Club posted a score of 39 points in the handicap stableford foursomes format to emerge as the winners from 16 pairs at the Eden Course.

Cameron, a 19-handicapper, only returned to the sport last year after a 10 year break, while 22-handicapper Johnston, has been playing at Pitlochry since the age of six. They are one of the youngest ever pairings to have competed.

The fellow Scottish pair of Elizabeth Anderson & Andrea Johnstone (Swanston) finished runners-up on 38 points.

After her win Isla Johnston said:

“We’re so happy, it’s amazing to win. I’ve been playing for eight years now as Pitlochry has a really good junior policy. I like going to new clubs as I play a lot of Pitlochry, so getting a change of scenery is really nice.”

Her playing partner, Lauren Cameron added:

“I think we knew we had a chance today, but I don’t think we would do it. It was great just to reach the Grand Final. I played golf when I was younger, then took 10 years off, and I only started again last year. We both come from families of golfers as well, so that really helps. It’s a great team event and we’ve loved competing in St Andrews and being part of this final.”

The winning duo can now look forward to competing in the Pro-Am for the 2022 AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield thanks to their victory.
